125th Street & Black Donald Trump Boulevard

September 26th, 2011 | 9:20 am | Daily News | 5 Comments

Quartersnacks will soon begin petitioning the city in hopes of changing the Harlem stretch of Seventh Avenue from Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard, to Black Donald Trump Boulevard, similar to a ten-year-old HBO initiative of renaming Crossbay Boulevard in Howard Beach to Tupac Shakur Boulevard.

Congratulations to the crew at KCDC on their ten years of business. The shop was featured in the Times this past weekend. The article is kind of corny, but non-corny mainstream media articles about skateboarding are few and far between.

Flushing, Queens, home of the largest post-Hurricane Irene sidewalk bump.

Leo Gutman is one of the best skateboarders in New York. Here’s a sick photo of him doing a frontside 180.

Roctakon was nominated for a Paper magazine “Nightlife Award.” He has a better 360 flip than anyone else nominated for the “Best DJ” category, so there’s no reason he shouldn’t win.

Mike’s Hard Lemonade, fool.” Early footage of Loose Trucks Max, cameos from Young M Dot Davis, and other clips of interest.

Some scans of a circa 2001 Mass Appeal article about Supreme. The bandana boards and Autumn’s Bradley “Demon Child” shirt are the two New York skate shop artifacts most in need of a re-issue.

Random Footage Bits: “Made in America” by Two Hawks Young, Richmond, VA crew ripping around the city (includes what’s probably the first non-rollerblade trick on that black kinked rail between Battery Park and Battery Park City.)

Below is a compilation clip of largely unreleased footage filmed by Jimmy Marketti throughout the past few years. Features a high volume of noteworthy New York skateboard personalities. And Shawn Powers engaging in a one-sided conversation with an inanimate object.

It’s strange that Brandon Westgate didn’t include YC and Future in his “Top 5 Bands” section for his Focus 10 Top 5’s.

!!!12th & A Update!!!: It’s not “completely done for,” as many have said, just closed for an undetermined amount of time while they figure some things out. Go skate a “real” spot.

Quote of the Week: “Ty, do you think Supreme would be down to put an ATM in front of the shop?” — Fat Billy From Spring Street

  • I’m just gonna guess that it’d be easier to get the city to name a Blvd that does not yet have some other person’s name assigned to it. Might have to settle for a smaller street, maybe? Regardless, it’s certainly a worthy cause. BDT for Mayor…or at least Comptroller.
